In this course students will learn the very foundation of Bachata. Perfect for those with absolutely zero experience. We’ll go over the fundamental movements and an easy overview of the basics to partnered Bachata dance.

Bachata dance styles originated in the Dominican Republic in the late 1950’s. This dance genre is danced as a three step ending in a tap on the 4th beat with Cuban hip motions. It uses different dance positions. Originally, it was similar to a bolero with slow music and mostly closed position. However, eventually it expanded to faster music and many different dance positions. It does not use as many fast turns as Salsa. There are a large number of movements for bachata dancing that can be executed in either a smooth style or with a slight hop.

Frequently Asked Questions.

What do I wear? Just wear something loose and comfortable and wear shoes that are closed in and not too grippy.

What do I bring? Water and a towel is advised.

Do I need to bring a partner? Absolutely not. Most students come alone and dance with the students that attend class.

How many students are in a class? We cap our classes at 20 students. We also try to keep the leader/follower numbers as even as possible, ten of each position. Traditionally a Leader is a Male student and a Follower is a Female student. However we encourage students to step into the role they feel comfortable with.

What if I’m really uncoordinated? That’s what you come to dance classes for right?!! Our instructors are incredibly patient, kind and will attend to your learning and concerns with care. Our community is also very supportive and will be very welcoming.
